The Patrick Madrid Show: April 25, 2024 – Hour 2

Young Carol from Bakersfield shares her thoughts on a Bible verse, Luke 17:21, seeking clarity on what it means when it says “the Kingdom of God is within you.” Patrick discusses how Jesus’s message is more about an internal spiritual kingdom rather than a physical earthly one. Later, we hear from Young Landon in Florida, contemplating a call to the priesthood amid growing concerns over a shortage of priests. Patrick navigates the distinctions between diocesan and religious life, stressing the importance of discerning God’s call.
